The methods that public sector procurement organizations use to surveil the open market are limited. Performing a comprehensive search for vendors, contractors and products which address specific government requirements can be time consuming and cumbersome, extending the acquisitions lifecycle considerably.
There is often an inconsistent relationship between price and value in public sector procurement. Limited data and qualified competition for government contracts erodes quality, increases risks and drives cost up over time.
Many government organizations have diversity and small business utilization mandates for awarding a percentage of new procurements to businesses with designated statuses. These mandates are also known as "set aside goals". Due to the quality of market data and lack of repeatable processes, set aside goals often go unmet.
